The Wrestling Observer are reporting that sales for Ring Of Honor's debut in Madison Square Garden on 6 April 2019 are destroying any pre-sale expectations.
ROH CEO Joe Koff has echoed Dave Meltzer's claims by telling Post Wrestling that the legendary venue is already 60% sold out. In terms of actual ticket numbers, the company have shifted around 9,000 thus far, and that also means they've filled approximately half of MSG's capacity.
For a non-WWE show in 2018, that's just a bit mind-blowing.
When briefs for the G1 Supercard special went on sale this past Wednesday, it was subscribers to Ring of Honor’s Honor Club program who had the first chance to buy. Prices started at $30 (for upper deck seating) and capped at $300 for a ringside experience. That's pretty reasonable for such a huge moment in indy wrestling history.
WWE won't be happy to hear that ROH are doing so well with ticket sales. The G1 Supercard is set to run against their NXT TakeOver show the same night in Brooklyn's Barclays Center, and (at this rate) it shouldn't be long before ROH sell out.
